3Oysters (or 3 Oysters? who knows) is a Korean ink company. Mustard is part of their Delicious line, which come in 38mL cube-ish bottles that have a corner missing, so as to allow you to tip the bottle over and refill better. Or so they say, anyway - I wouldn't know, because this is from a sample from the generous amberleadavis. Thank you, Amber! This ink is a delightful dark mustardy yellow brown. I noticed that is seemed to "soak in" to papers a bit more compared to the average ink. I think I will save this to use on TR and such for the nice crisp halo. Bleeding: A bit more than average on bad paper; see the "soaking in" comment, but none on fp-friendly Dry time: Nothing out of the ordinary. Feathering: A bit more than average on bad paper; see the "soaking in" comment, but none on fp-friendly Haloing: Yes, and beautifully so, but not in a fine nib on moderately good paper Lubrication: Less than average Saturation: Average Shading: Very much. Sheen: None whatsoever Smudging: None when dry Water Resistance: Surprisingly, a bit survived after contact with some droplets, but don't bank on it. Wetness: Average Closeups: You can see here some weird white-ish spots in the text, making it look a bit chalky. These are present under magnification but really difficult to see in real life.

Hello again to all my FPN friends, One of the interesting things for me about this hobby is how easily and suddenly my preferences for a particular design or color can change. I never use yellow for anything other than highlighting and previously would have thought something like a yellow pen to be tasteless or just plain weird. Then I saw these: WingSung 601 LE (Photo courtesy of Frankunderwater) Penbbs 308 Mango Yellow After seeing these beauties, something in my head snapped and I knew I must have an audacious and bold yellow pen! Sadly, the WS is a limited edition with an inconvenient filling system and the Penbbs 308 won't work for me for other reasons. Now the hunt is on. What's your favorite yellow pen?
